Hi Nicole,


You need ads and keywords to run your campaigns. Google cannot trigger ads until there are no keywords in the search network.


Please check the below links to get more info on keywords, account structure and other features -

Hey Nicole,

It seems that your Ad group does not have any keywords or any active keywords.

Thus first you have to check in the ad group keywords.

then add some keywords to run your ads in Search engine result page or enable the paused keywords of your ad group.

You can use the keyword planner to find the good keywords.
